"I suggested that the search should perhaps be along the 100E meridan, but at the time this was well east of where the search was being conducted. This latest news of the ping pickup at S25101E, if...

"Why is the Captain theory so insisted on by many here ? Are the crew the only ones who could fly the aircraft ? Not so in 9/11.

Media Hype

"I'm not really sure that this is new news. Most of the possible flight paths I've seen have had MH370 jogging to the North for some weeks now. Maybe what they are intending to point out is that they...

Deliberate Stealth Route

"Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 flew north of Indonesia and around Indonesian airspace in its journey to the southern Indian Ocean, a senior Malaysian government source told CNN.
The conclusion was...

That is exactly the point that I have been trying to make. But it is true that there is now NO direct evidence that the aircraft flew North out of Malaysian Airspace over the Staits of Malacca, out...

@Wiggy

Yes, fair point. I was simply assuming that at least SOME of the Malaysian information was correct, although that might be a stretch.

But I still do not believe there is any way that the aircraft...

Indonesia

No way in Hell. Jakarta would be nowhere near the flight path. Aceh is an incredibly sensitive area for Indonesia and there is no way that anything flew over or around Indonesian airspace in North...

Aceh is a highly sensitive area to the Indonesians. And most folks in the Region are aware of that. There is no way that this aircraft passed through Indonesian airspace in or around North Sumatera...

Finding any debris will help the families find closure. My heart goes out to them.

More BS

I fly through MLE frequently. It is a busy airport open 24/7. As indeed are all the other Indian/Sri Lankan airports suggested. Diego Garcia is a US/UK Military base which is a preferred location by...

@onetrack

Beg pardon and stand corrected. But the question remains the same. Would that area be controlled from Australia or Diego Garcia?

For which reason also, I find the "Tailgating" theory unpersuasive on balnce to get a silent 772 right over the sub-continent? The Southern route seems more plausible. If 1000 Km West of PER,...

They can't (Easily) do that BUT the CVR only records 2 hours and the DFDR may simply tell us, roughly, what we already know.

So we may never get to the facts of what actually happened and why??

SQ068 was discussed earlier as such a possibility but nobody was ever able to confirm its routing on the evening in question. This is clearly not an amateur operation and that might be quite likely....

With the "New" information in mind, I return to a post I made this time yesterday. An American General interviewed by Fox suggested that the aircraft was bound for Pakistan. Again, that was before...

Perhaps because it involved triangualtion with "Other Satellites" which Government(s) don't necessarily want you to know about?

Because the Americans state this is what they have? It might be triangulated from data collected by other Spook satellites so don't expect them to be too specific.

There remains the possibility that data was triangulated using Spook sats. If so, they aren't going to divulge anything further. We will know whether there is anything to it within the next 24 hours...

They said that they also knew the flight path so that would narrow the initial search area down substantially, assuming it didn't make another U-turn just ahead of ditching.

Andamans

The Andamans themselves would not be five hours flying time from when the aircraft stopped transmitting.

Plus, if the Americans indeed DO have all the data they claim (GPS altitude etc.) then if...

Satcom Phones

In response to an earlier post, I flew in an MH 772 recently and can confirm that it was NOT fitted with a Satcom Phone system.
